You And The Flu—Your Best Defense Is To Be Proactive

Newpaper Headline - Swine Flu

It is especially important this school season to be proactive against the flu. Taking preventative measures is your best defense against the ‘seasonal’ flu.

  • The seasonal flu outbreak usually occurs between mid-fall thru early spring. Each year a vaccine is developed to target the type of virus that is anticipated. The seasonal flu spreads mainly from person to person through coughing or sneezing by people with influenza. You can also become infected by touching something with the flu virus on it such as a door knob, computer keypad, gym weights, classroom desk, and then touching your nose, eyes, or mouth.
